These are my first fabric beads! I was inspired by an article by Barbara Matthiessen in Belle Armoire Jewelry II-pg 72-75. I made these last night and just figured out the instructions today. That's just me. Now that I read everything a little closer and pay attention to the tips and pics.....I see how to do it. I made each one of these individually by wrapping fabric strips around a skewer. But, now I see you make one big tube and then cute the beads from that tube. Probably much easier. Oh well, the results are still satisfying to me. There is just an easier way! Yay!
It was a busy Saturday. I cleaned the entire house really good (even my craft room). I helped Heather get the Photoshop CS3 uploaded and got her new printer hooked up and helped her reorganize her room. Heather loves to draw cartoon like pictures. She is really good. I just felt like she needed a better work space and some light so she could do her art. Anyway, I'm very tired but it is a good tired. I feel like I accomplished much. So, now I am just relaxing and doing my blog thing. Let me close by sharing a pic of our Sebastian (Golden Retriever). I got him a special bone at the store today. This is a picture of him out in the back yard chowing down. He stayed out there a good hour just enjoying that bone.
